Paper cutting in ancient surroundings

I have had a long standing assignation with the WI ladies of Knowle and surrounding area, and yesterday was the big day. I drove up the night before and did a bit of a recce so that Tuesday would start smoothly and it did. Our location was the beautiful ancient building that now houses Knowle library. It dates back to the 1400's  making my cottage seem rather modern with it's 1610 date tag. We were upstairs surrounded in what felt like the heart of the building with many a sweeping beam and leaded windows - a truly special place. We had a busy day of designing and cutting and everyone departed with a completed piece of work - smiles all round.

Love this pink themed window on Knowle High Street
The back of the library - new beams integrated with
original ancient timbers
The front of the library
Our work space, steeped in history and full of
Some Christmas themed cuts

An intricate wedding cake cut
A family heart
Teddy for a grand child
